Good evening! You seem to be a very caring breeder who's moms and dads are actually your pets. Is that right? If so, I have a couple of questions that I was hoping you could help me with. My children and I are having the "puppy itch". We currently have a male boxer who turned 6 in November. He is our baby and is spoiled rotten!! He is very energetic but well behaved and non-destructive. My concern is that he will not tolerate a new puppy in the house due to the fact that it has been just him for 6 years. I would never want to upset him or do something that he would not like. As I said, he is our baby/best friend. What have you seen in these cases? My other concern is that a puppy will change his behavior in regards to not being destructive. Do you have any insight into that? I read that if we were to add a puppy, that a female would be the best option so it would not affect his dominance". Is that an accurate statement?
Sheri

SHERI, YES, THEY ARE MY PETS! EVERY DOG WILL HAVE THEIR OWN PERCEPTION OF THINGS. I PERSONALLY SUSPECT ANY DOGS REACTION CAN BE CONTROLLED BY IT'S OWNER!!! MY BOXERS FOR EXAMPLE ARE VERY, VERY WELL BEHAVED (GENERALLY SPEAKING). I HAVE BROUGHT NEW BOXERS HOME (PUPS AND ADULTS) AND I INTRODUCE ONE AT A TIME WITH NO WORRIES. I WOULD NEVER LET ALL OF MY BOXERS LOOSE ON A NEW INTRODUCTION, THEY'D PROBABLY HAVE A "PACK REACTION"! I ALWAYS SLOWLY INTRODUCE MORE BOXERS ONE AT A TIME TO ANY NEW ADDITION.

I HAVE NEVER, EVER HAD AN ADVERSE REACTION TO ANY NEW ADDITION, PUPPY OR ADULT. ALL NEW INTRODUCTIONS ARE SUPERVISED THOUGH BY ME. I WOULD TECHNICALLY HAVE MORE CONCERNS WITH HUMAN INTRODUCTIONS THAN OTHER ANIMALS THOUGH BUT ONLY WITH ONE PARTICULAR ALPHA MALE. BACK TO YOUR CONCERNS NOW.

IN MY OWN EXPERIENCE, MY BOXERS DO NOT HAVE ISSUES WITH OTHER ANIMALS (UNLESS THEY ARE TINY AND RUN AWAY) LIKE A SQUIRREL OR A CAT. GRANTED THEY WILL ALL REACT TO ANY OTHER ANIMAL WITH EXCITEMENT, CURIOSITY AND INTEREST. MY MALES WILL STOMP AND PRANCE WITH OTHER MALE BOXERS BUT
AFTER A SHORT STOMPING SESSION, THEY ARE MORE INTERESTED IN SNIFFING EACH OTHER AND PEEING ON EVERYTHING, THEN, FOLLOWING THE NEW DOG AROUND WHICH USUALLY IS MORE INTERESTED IN THE LAY OF THE LAND AND IT'S NEW ENVIRONMENT THAN MY CURRENT BOXERS.

I'D HAVE TO GUESS THAT YOU SHOULD KNOW YOUR DOG BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE AND YOU SHOULD KNOW HOW THEY WILL REACT TO ANOTHER ANIMAL, PUPPY OR ADULT. IF YOU SEEM TO FEEL THERE WOULD BE AN ISSUE, YOUR PROBABLY RIGHT! GO WITH YOUR GUT FEELINGS.

HAVING SAID THAT, MY EXPERIENCE BOXERS ARE THEY TYPICALLY LOVING & FRIENDLY DOGS AND NOT AGGRESSIVE (UNLESS GROOMED THAT WAY OR TREATED POORLY BY OWNERS) . NOT TO SAY THEY WON'T ACT AGGRESSIVE IF THEY FEEL THERE IS AN ISSUE WITH SOMETHING. BOXERS WILL JUMP, STAND ON THEIR HIND
LEGS, PUSH AND BOX, THIS IS FOR SURE.

I WOULD SUSPECT THAT IF YOU HAVE A LOVING BOXER, THEY WILL ADJUST JUST FINE FAIRLY QUICKLY. I'D GUESS THAT IF YOUR DOG IS "UNHAPPY" WIT A NEW PUP, THIS WOULD CHANGE AND THEY WOULD BECOME GREAT FRIENDS. THE PUP WILL JUST WANT TO BITE, CHEW AND PLAY WITH THE ADULT AND SOONER OR LATER, I'D GUESS YOUR BOXER WILL FALL INTO PLACE THE SAME WAY. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE ALWAYS - OBSERVED WITH MINE!!!

I'D GUESS YOUR NEW PUPPY WILL PRESENT THE MOST CHALLENGES (CHEWING AND PLAYFUL DESTRUCTIVENESS), LIKE THE TERRIBLE TWO'S LIKE IN HUMAN CHILDREN, POTTY TRAINING AND SUCH... I'D GUESS YOUR MATURE, CALM AND LOVING ADULT BOXER WILL SLOWLY PASS ON THEIR TRAAITS AND TRAINING
SUBLIMINALLY TO THE PUPPY. MY ADULT BOXERS USUALLY SET THE EXAMPLE TO NEW ADDITIONS TO MY GROUP. THEY ARE A VERY SMART BREED AND I LET MY VETERAN BOXERS DO MOST THE WORK FOR ME AND THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW IT. IT'S KIND OF LIKE MONKEE SEE, MONKEE DO! I'D BE REAL SURPRISED IF YOUR ADULT
REJECTED A PUPPY AND I'D BE HAPPY TO TAKE ANY PUPPY BACK IF YOU HAVE INTEGRATION ISSUES DOWN THE LINE.

AS FOR FEMALES TO FEMALES, THIS IS ANOTHER STORY. FEMALES SEEM TO BE MORE TEMPERAMENTAL THAN MALES. MALES STOMP, PRANCE AND GET OVER IT FAIRLY QUICKLY. IF THERE'S A DOMINANT (ALPHA) MALE, IT USUALLY STAYS THAT WAY WITH ANY NEW ADULT MALE INTRODUCED. FEMALES ON THE OTHER HAND I
HAVE ALWAYS OBSERVED MOODINESS AND CATTINESS

THEY TOO WILL GET OVER IT ONCE THE "PERCEIVED THREAT" FADES IN A PRETTY SHORT TIME BUT WHEN THEY RASSLE, THEY RASSLE!!! THE BOYS MAKE "NOISE" BY GROWLING, BOXING AND MOUNTING EACH OTHER, THEN MOVE ON TO PLAY FIGHTING "ALL THE TIME" AND BOXING EACH OTHER. TYPICAL MALE STUFF. FEMALES ON THE
OTHER HAND ARE ANOTHER STORY AND I HAVE SEVERAL FEMALES BUT I WATCH THEM CLOSELY IF ONES IN HEAT, HAS A LITTER OR OTHER MAJOR THINGS GOING ON. ALL IN ALL, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY BOXERS ARE GREAT DOGS AND ARE REALLY NO DIFFERENT THAN TEENAGERS AND I HAVE THEM ALSO AT HOME. IT SEEMS TO BE LOTS OF CHILD PSYCHOLOGY AND BABY SITTING SINCE ALL MY BOXERS REALLY EVER DO ARE CHASE, DIG, RASSLE, WAG THEIR STUBBY TAILS, SLEEP AND EAT. I HAVE VERY HAPPY DOGS AND THOUGH MISCHIVOUS ALOT, THEY NEVER REALLY DO ANYTHING MAJORLY WRONG THAT A FINGER POINT AT THEM DOESN'T CORRECT. I'D
GUESS IF YOU'VE HAD CHILDREN AND DELAT WITH TYPICAL CHILDREN THINGS OVER THE YEARS, YOU'LL BE ABLE TO INTEGRATE A PUPPY TO AN ADULT DOG. CHILDREN ARE CHILDREN, JUST SCOLD, LOVE AND TEACH AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY AND A GOOD RESULT USUALLY IS THE OUTCOME.

BOXERS TO ME ARE LIKE PERPETUAL CHILDREN, ONCE YOU KNOW HOW TO PUSH THEIR BUTTONS THE RIGHT WAY, THINGS RUN SMOOTHLY.

We are a loving home with XXXXX that are XXXXX. We have a huge fenced in back yard and have over nine years experience with boxers.

Good evening,
I am emailing to get a little more information on how to possibly make a reservation on a puppy from your March/April fawn litter. We are very interested in a boxer puppy as our first dog and we are both in love with a fawn boxer. I am a high school teacher and we are looking to get a dog towards the end of my school year, so I can devote all the time it needs while it is young while I am off during the summer. I believe that I saw the puppies go out 8-10 weeks after they are born, which would put this right in the time frame we are looking for. How does it work to go about making a reservation for a puppy in that litter? If we were to put a deposit down, is that refundable at all? The only reason I ask, is that we are both set on a male puppy. So for whatever reason if we could
not get a male puppy, is that deposit refundable? This would be are first dog together in our first home and we are extremely excited! I found you online and am just looking for more information. How do buyers go about choosing their puppy from the litter? Are they able to come interact with puppies or are they chosen strictly from photos? Are all your puppies 599$ without papers or do you base price on markings as well? We would be very interested in moving forward with a reservation for that litter, we are just looking for more information. If you could provide any further information on yourself as a breeder and your process, we would GREATLY appreciate it. We want to get a puppy and again BEYOND excited about it. I really appreciate your time in reading
this! Thank you!

  1. TO MAKE A RESERVATION, I NEED TO SEND YOU PRE QUALIFICATION QUESTIONS (I'LL DO THAT NEXT. 2. AS MY WEB SITE INDICATES, DEPOSITS ARE NOT REFUNDABLE SO DO NOT MAKE ONE UNLESS YOUR COMMITTED TO GETTING A PUPPY. I DON'T GO BACK AND FORTH WITH PEOPLE SO I MAKE THIS CLEAR UP FRONT. YOU COULD EITHER FORFEIT THE DEPOSIT IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND OR IF YOU COULDN'T GET THE PUP YOU
WANTED (SOMEONE WITH A SMALLER DEPOSIT# BEFORE YOU), YOU CAN TRANSFER IT TO THE NEXT LITTER WHICH MOST LIKELY PUTS YOU #1 IN LINE FOR THAT FUTURE LITTER. 3. BUYERS CHOOSE THEIR PUP FROM THE PICTURES WE POST. I HAVE 4 DEPOSITS RIGHT NOW AND I WILL BE GETTING WITH THEM TODAY TO REMIND THEM TO START LOOKING AT THE PUPS AND MAKE A SELECTION SO I CAN MARK THEM RESERVED FOR
THEM 4. AS FAR AS INTERACTION WITH THE PUPS, LOOK AT OUR VISITATION POLICY ON OUR WEB SITE UNDER THE ABOUT US / TERMS (3rd paragraph). 5. PRICES, CLICK ON FAQ/FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS PAGE FOR THAT DETAIL. YOU'LL SEE THE BASE PRICING'S ARE NOT DUE TO MARKINGS. I DO RESERVE THE RIGHT FROM ANY LITTER TO SELECT ONE OF THEM DUE TO MARKINGS OR LACK OF AND MARK IT AS THE BREEDERS PIK OF LITTER. I DO THIS TO ENHANCE SELECTIVE OUTCOMES FROM MY LITTERS FOR BREEDING. IN THE 1/15 LITTER, I DID NOT SELECT ONE FOR MY STOCK.
6. AS FAR AS INFO ON MYSELF, THIS IS ALSO POSTED ON THE SITE ALREADY ON THE ABOUT US PAGE. 7. I SHARE YOUR ENTHUSIASM FOR A BOXER IN YOUR FAMILY. I HAVE QUITE A FEW OF THEM AND THEY ALL MY "FOSTER CHILDREN".

Good morning Drew! We would like to have baby #BLB011509 or 10 if for us. Boy oh boy, is it March yet?!
Thanks, L
   
CAN'T MARK THAT PUP YET FOR YOU TIL THE OTHERS PRIOR TO YOU MAKE THEIR SELECTIONS. I'LL KEEP MY FINGERS CROSSED AND NOTED WHICH TWO YOU WOULD PREFER IN MY NOTES IN YOUR FILE. I'LL GET CRACKIN ON IT TODAY WITH EVERYONE.

My husband and I are looking at getting a puppy for our son's 5th birthday (3/14/15) which is a day before your release date. We are wondering that date could be a day or two sooner so that we could surprise him with the puppy on his birthday. We are about 2 1/2 hours from you. We can be reached at my email or by home phone (XXX) XXX-XXXX. Thank you.
   
  THIS WOULD BE FINE. GOTTA MAKE HIS DAY SPECIAL AND BE SURE TO GET LOTS OF PICTURES THAT HE CAN REMINISCE ON AS HE GETS OLDER. BOTH YOUR SON AND THE PUPPY WILL SPROUT LIKE WEEDS AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, HE'LL BE 15 AND HE'LL HAVE GREAT MEMORIES. (this is how things seem to be at my house with our pups and kids). I'LL SEND YOU THE PRE QUALIFICATION QUESTIONS RIGHT AWAY, THEY ARE GOING REALLY, REALLY FAST (they usually do) SO YOU'LL NEED TO WORK QUICK TO MEET THAT DEADLINE BEFORE THEY ARE ALL GONE. I'LL WATCH FOR YOUR REPLY TONIGHT SO WE CAN GET THINGS GOING FOR YOU.

I am interested in putting down a deposit on a puppy from your litter that was just born. Not sure how many fawn you have or if the deposits you receive ahead of mine choose the fawn , what would happen then? Do you happen to accept credit card? I just had to put down my 8 year old English bulldog last week, and my 7 year old boxer is in need of a new best friend. I have been a public school teacher for 30 years. My dogs live 100% inside and are the focus of my life. When they go out to potty, they have a huge fenced in lawn to run in.
   
  TO SEE WHAT'S IN THIS LITTERS LINE UP, GO TO OUR WEB SITES FOR SALE PAGE.
YOU WILL ALSO SEE THE RESERVED PUPS AND DEPOSITS SO FAR ON SAME PAGE.
IF I HAVE YOUR DEPOSIT AND YOU CANNOT FIND A REMAINING PUPPY YOU LIKE, YOUR DEPOSIT WILL AUTOMATICALLY GO TO THE NEXT LITTER. RIGHT NOW I HAVE NO DEPOSITS FOR THE NEXT LITTER AND THERE ARE 6 REMAINING PUPS FROM THE 1/15 LITTER.
NO CREDIT CARDS, PERSONAL CHECKS ARE OK.

I also need to add that I prefer to NOT have the tail docked. Will that pose a problem?

2nd reply.....

Thanks for that answer.

I understand. So say I'm third on the list and the other 2 people pick their pup within the time frame for the tail to be docked. And I picked mine would that work? Or do you not post pics within the timeframe or some people take too long? Or can you just not guarantee me an undocked tail?

I'm okay with a docked tail. My toy fox terrier is docked. I really prefer the 3/15 due to the summer time frame.
 
 

Under normal circumstances, this is NOT a problem and can remain that way on a FUTURE litter when you have the 1st deposit towards THAT LITTER...

However, tails/claws MUST BE docked within 1st 72 hours after birth because cartilage hardens up after this time and would make docking difficult and really painful. So, I have no choice but to dock and claw WITHIN 3 days following births.

I don't see anyway to get this coordinated for you right now. (unless I had no deposits on existing or future litters).

What I can suggest is that you get in a deposit, but NOT for THIS (1/15) or the NEXT (3/15) litter but the one AFTER THAT (around July '15) ... I already have this present litter (1/15) sold and I already have 2 deposits and another on the way in for the next litter (3/15) but, after this, I have NO DEPOSITS YET. I realize this may be too far off for you and I understand completely if that's the case.

This way your #1 on the list (around July '15), then, if you can select a pup from a 24-48 hour old litter and I can omit that specific pup for you and I will NOT get that tail docked, only dew claws (unless you want them to remain also) , then we can coordinate this for you BUT, one more detail, full price needs to be paid. A deposit (whenever but asap) of $100 and the balance MUST be paid no later than the day of birth (because I don't want to have an undocked puppy if you renege on your deposit) and no one else wants the pup. If the pup is paid for within 24 hours of birth, I will NOT do whatever you instruct me to do. This is the best recommendation, I can suggest.

2nd Answer......

I can - GUARANTEE you NO docked tail when conditions exist. These conditions will exist NOT for present or next litter, but the one after that.

Those folks with reservations won't select a pup in the 1st 72 hours after birth. I don't even post pics until they about a week old (because they don't take pics well immediately after birth). I can guarantee an docked tail for ANY litter where your #1 in line and you select a pup, pay for a pup anytime - BEFORE the pups are 24 hours old. After 72 hours old, they get docked UNLESS selected and paid for with NO DOCKING desired.

Folks usually make their choices in the first 2 weeks.
   
I am interested in putting a deposit down for puppy# blb071506.
   
 

I have 3 puppies that are reverse brindle (black) that already have reservations. Which 3 puppies they will be has not yet been determined.

Puppies are selected, in the order deposits are received. At this point, if you submitted and I receive a deposit from you, you would be able to select 4th in line.

Will the puppy you ID'd be available when the other 3 selections are made? This is an unknown. You have a 3 out of 7 chance your puppy would be selected by one of the already secured deposits. In other words, you have a 70% chance the one you like based on a picture, would still be available. These are pretty good odds. Best thing to do is get a deposit in BEFORE the odds get worse.

Someone has to pick 1st, 2nd, 3rd and so forth. This is determined by deposits received.

Any questions?

Drew

REPLY:Ok thank you, I understand. However, he is the only one I am interested in. It is a gift for my fiancé and that is the one he picked out because he wanted a boy that was mostly black. So if I put in my deposit and that puppy isn't available when I arrive, am I able to get my deposit back or just put it towards the next litter? If so how frequently do you guys have litters of reverse brindle puppies? He is supposed to be a Christmas gift but we found your site and seen that they will be available before then so I just want to get everything in order as soon as I can. Thank you

MY REPLY: The only one you're interested in, someone else may be interested in already. I have some deposits on the black boxers already and selection may begin as early as this weekend.

I can only recommend you check back periodically and see if the one puppy picture you like is still available. If it is, you should place a deposit RIGHT AWAY to secure that puppy. Deposits received get first selection because they were first (in the order in which they were received).

As for "are deposits refundable"? Read thru our FAQ page for that detail.

Finally, if a puppy you were able to select based on a simple picture, was selected by a depositor BEFORE you, you can always select a different puppy and IF - there was not a puppy available that suited your "eye candy", you may always shift your deposit to a future litter and be first in the selection spot. EVERY puppy we have will be selected by someone and everyone is going to end up loving their puppy regardless of some white here or some black there. Just as if you have a child yourself, no matter how they look, you'll end up loving them.

Puppies are NOT Mazerratti's, they are animals and every flavor of puppy we have will ultimately end up being cherished by their adopted families. If your really concerned about "eye candy", and would ONLY be happy with a puppy with certain colors or characteristics, submit a deposit for the next litter where your in the #1 selection slot. If your a breeder, I will not sell you a puppy. If you want a simple family pet, any puppy should suffice. If you need particular eye candy or a trophy animal, please contact another breeder who enjoys that attention.

Respectfully,
Drew

   
Hi! My name is Alexandra. I am very interested in your last available fawn male! I was wondering if you could tell me a little bit about his temperament. He is one of the prettier ones I've seen online and I'd really like to put a deposit on him as long as he's got the kind of personality I'm looking for! Thanks so much!
   
  He plays, wrestles and sleeps all the time. This is the only input at this age I could provide.

Other than the description I gave above, you won't get much more out of a puppy than that. Of course, if the puppy was lonely, he may look sad but that is an emotion, not a temperament. If the puppy was abused all the time, he'd perhaps look afraid or shy but this also, is not a temperament, but an emotion.

When they wrestle, this is also an emotion. Just like if you got into an argument with your wife, that doesn't mean that's your temperament but rather an emotion during the argument.

So, no temperament info at this time. Your puppy, any puppies temperament will most likely be mirrored by the environment he/she is raised in. A loving environment would certainly produce a loving animal. Put the animal in groups of other MEAN ANIMALS, the pup would most likely be mean and DEVELOP a mean temperament.

On another note, I've read we are all racist to some extent or another, this is unfortunately an event that automatically happens, know it or not, like it, or not. MAYBE, this is sort of what your talking about??? Maybe this is what you mean by "temperament"??? Well, your dog will chew on things they're not suppose to and pee on your floor under normal conditions. But, with training, you can curb this "behavior"??? You may end up a democrat or a republican and have that temperament??? All of these conditions can be controlled to one degree or another thru training or environment etc.....

They will instinctively give chase to a fleeing squirrel. They will instinctively bark at intruders and strangers? They will instinctively be scared by load noises like fireworks and thunder. They may bite you or someone else if they have good reason. If this is what you mean by temperament, expect them to act like an animal... All of these conditions can be controlled to one degree or another thru training or environment etc.....

MAYBE, this is what you mean by temeperment.

I can tell you this... I HAVE NO CONTROL OVER YOUR PUPPIE'S TEMPERENT... How they will evolve and what kind of adult dogs they become will be determined by how they are treated, their environment amoung other things once they go to their forever homes.

I'll be able to ASK YOU, how your dogs temperment is probably in a couple to 4-6 months AFTER you have been raising your puppy...

No matter what, THEY WILL ALWAYS BE AN ANIMAL. It's similar to a child growing up. If they are raised in the inner city with street gangs and drugs, we can guess what their temperament will be like. That child will grow up and "bite", drink, do drugs, vandalize, steal etc...

If they're raised in a loving family unit with the common things most families have (or wish they had), they will probably turn out smart, educated, well fed yada, yada, yada. That child will grow up and have good grades, wear nice clothes that doesn't hang down past their but crack, have nice friends, get an education, a good paying job with money left over for investments and vacations and overall, do well thanks to their PARENTS rearing and gu...

I hope this helps...

Please email me at this point so I have records of our conversations for your file.

REPLY: Ok thank you for the information. If I pay the cost of the puppy in full, does it hold the specific puppy that I am interested in?

REPLY: Only if your the first one to select a puppy on the numbered spots.

The amount of a deposit does NOT influence once placement. The only thing that guarantees ones placement is the order in which the deposit
is received.

If your not comfortable with your numbered position, you can always submit a deposit for the NEXT litter and have the #1 selection slot. You
may not have read at all or thoroughly, the FAQ's, this is covered in there and may also have some added remarks in the ASK THE BREEDER page.

What is Histiocytoma and how does it affect my dog?
   
  Histiocytoma in Dogs

A histiocytoma is a benign skin tumor that originates in the Langerhans cells, immune cells that function to provide protective immunity to the tissues that are in contact with the outer environment -- the nose, stomach, intestines and lungs, but mainly the skin's surface. These cells are also referred to as dendritic cells, and histiocytes.

Histiocytomas are common in dogs, with some breeds appearing to be more predisposed that others. These breeds include flat-coated retrievers, bull terriers, boxers, dachshunds, cocker spaniels, Great Danes, and Shetland sheepdogs. More than 50 percent of diagnosed patients are under two years of age. Otherwise, there is no gender difference.

Symptoms
•Small, firm, dome or button-shaped masses on the skin surface
•Rare autoimmune blistering (dermoepithelial) masses, which may be ulcerated
•Fast growing, nonpainful, usually solitary
•Common sites are the head, ear edges, and limbs
•Occasionally multiple skin nodules or plaques

Causes
Unknown

Diagnosis
You will need to give a thorough history of your dog's health and onset of symptoms, after which your veterinarian will perform a thorough physical exam. A complete blood profile will be conducted, including a chemical blood profile, a complete blood count, a urinalysis and an electrolyte panel. Most of these tests return as normal.

Other diagnostic tests include a cytologic examination (a microscopic examination of the cells) using a sample gathered by fine-needle aspirate. This may reveal pleomorphic round cells (cells taking one or more forms), with variable-sized and -shaped nuclei. It is common to find that the mitotic index (a measure of the proliferation, or fast production status of a cell population) is high. The tests may also show evidence of substantial
lymphocyte (white blood cell in the vertebrate immune system), plasma cell, and neutrophil (the most abundant type of white blood cells) infiltration.

Treatment
Since some treatments can adversely affect malignant tumors, important to differentiate histiocytoma, a benign growth of tissue, from a malignant tumor. Your veterinarian will talk to you about this, and will give you the option of taking a wait-and-see approach. If you do have the tumor diagnosed conclusively, and it is found to be a histiocytoma, the usual method of treatment is surgical excision of the mass, or cryosurgery, which is conducted with a laser. Either one is generally curative.

If the mass is left alone, it may spontaneously regress within three months. This is a decision that you will have to make once you have been informed of every possible eventuality, and every treatment method that is available for your dog.

Living and Management
Surgical excision of the mass is recommended if the mass has not spontaneously regressed within three months. With removal of the mass, the long-term prognosis is generally excellent.
